Sutil facing court after Eric Lux assault - report

The German driver this week apologised after it emerged he injured Renault team owner Genii's chief executive Eric Lux during a private nightclub party for Lewis Hamilton's win in Shanghai.

Lux was wearing a bandage on his neck in Turkey last weekend amid rumours Sutil attacked him with a broken champagne glass.

It has also been rumoured Lux required more than a dozen stitches, that he has suffered hearing problems since the incident, and that Force India driver Sutil may have been drunk.

The French-language website said Lux "has lodged a complaint and the German driver will have to explain himself in court".
